It's About Net Time

Just a short survey dealing with Amateur Etiquette.
No particular reason for this post... but kudos to David, WA4VVX, for his professional demeanor in avoiding a potentially unpleasant situation the other day    ;-)

Survey question:  What is the best way to convince another operator to surrender the frequency?

Note...  this survey is for grins and giggles only. We should all be grown-ups on the air.

Also, here's a link to the IARU manual Ethics and Operating Procedures For The Radio Amateur (online PDF file.)

I recommend Section III.9 : Conflict Situations  (pages 58 through  60.)  It's written with DX in mind but applicable to other situations as well.  I learned a few things while skimming through it.

Normally, I'm an agent provocateur in such matters, but I'm trying to be the better man.
